Headword: *nikh/tas
Adler number: nu,386
Translated headword: Niketas, Nicetas
Vetting Status: high
A proper name. A Doric [dialect] one. So also [there is] Philetas and Philetes[1] according to Dorians. Both common nouns have the accent [on the last syllable] lowered [in forming the proper names] to distinguish them from the epithets nikhth/s ["victor"] and filhth/s ["lover"].
Greek Original:
*nikh/tas: o)/noma ku/rion. *dwriko/n. ou(/tw kai\ *filh/tas kai\ filh/ths kata\ *dwriei=s. baru/netai de\ a)/mfw ta\ koina\ pro\s diastolh\n e)piqe/twn tou=, o( nikhth\s kai\ o( filhth/s.
cf. nu 385, nu 387. Perhaps the Doric version of the name should be Nikatas.
[1] Adler prints this word in lower case, but the overall sense of the entry surely requires another proper name.
